"I have some information for you on the numbers of Unification Church members. I have been a member since 1974 and it has always been hard to get a good estimate of the total number of members. One thing that did happen is that in February 2003 Rev. Moon asked one person from each church family in the USA to go to Korea for a two week outreach program. A bit over 2,400 went, which was the goal. Not every family was able to send someone and a few families sent more. Also a few Europeans went too and were counted with the Americans. "Americans " also includes people born in other countries and living in the USA, some joined the church here and some joined in their home countries. I would consider a family that would do this on short notice [if I remember correctly we were given about two weeks notice] and at some expense to be dedicated church members. So about 2,400 families, maybe 10,000 members in the USA. "
